Playing or sitting out of the Game? The game is changing. Are students changing with it or being left behind? The game is beginning to change by little kids no older than 10 or 12. According to a study in 2012 presented in Alice Armstrong’s Technology in the Classroom: It’s Not a Matter of ‘If,’ but ‘When’ and ‘how’ one out of three middle school students use their phones for homework. The article “Technology in the Classroom: It 's Not a Matter of ‘If’, but ‘When’ and ‘How’ by Alice Armstrong suggests that students have a better chance to go into a STEMM class when using technology for class. One can better understand the issue of technology in the classroom through looking at “The School Bell Isn 't the Only Thing Ringing” from American Teacher, “Technology in the Classroom: It 's Not a Matter of ‘If’, but ‘When’ and ‘How’” by Alice Armstrong and “Cell Phones as Instructional Tools” by Kipp D. Rogers. “The School Bell Isn’t the Only Thing Ringing” from American Teacher expands upon how technology specifically cell phones are revolutionizing the what children. Due to the introduction of technology new teaching styles and rules have to be introduced as well. in my experiences rules for cell phones …show more content…
“In the article Technology in the Classroom: It 's Not a Matter of ‘If’, but ‘When’ and ‘How’” Alice Armstrong describes how the different types of the technology is helping kids learn in school. This articles suggest that when technology is present in the classroom students who use the devices are more likely to be interested in STEMM classes. If students become more interested in STEMM than they have a chance to have better jobs and have a better. Alice says how students who use technological devices in classrooms are more interested in math and science. She backs this statement up by saying that using technology encourages the students to use the internet as a resource and also to work with other students engages the students in ways that textbooks and lectures
Most schools today use different versions of technology to advance learning in the classroom, but in reality this is making students learn a lot less. Students have access to all sorts of games, videos, and anything not school work related on a device. Spending more time on leisure activities
In today’s modern society technology plays a huge role in everyday life. Technology has a big position in education. Today students use laptops for school on an everyday basis to take notes, work on assignments, and research. Many people agree that, when it comes to education, technology can either be very harmful or very helpful. Timothy D. Snyder, a history professor at the University of Yale has written five award-winning books.
He believes that technology should be used to help the students along, not to replace cognitive thinking. He creates an informational atmosphere in the way he presents the
With decades of research, it came to a conclusion that not all students learn the same way. Jeremy Roschelle is co-director of the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International. In his research, he examines the classroom use of innovations that enhance learning difficult ideas in mathematics and science. Chad Lane has a Ph.D. and M.S. in computer science and wants to create educational technology that will compelling and engaging.
Take gadgets such as the cell phone for example; cell phones are one of the most commonly used devices in our society. There is no argument that such a small piece of metal and wires has “changed the way our society approaches learning and even life itself” (NCES). Some college professors and even elementary school teachers have formatted assignments to be technologically savvy. Learning in the classroom not only involves a paper and pen, but has evolved to using cell phones to take pictures of slides, write down homework assignments, or even to quickly research the topic being discussed in a
The rivalry between students who believe they should be able to use their cell phones in class and teachers who believe them to be disrespectful has caused a ripple effect that now bleeds through many classrooms roaring its controversial head. And here we are stuck in an ongoing battle seldom won by students. The position that students should not be able to misuse their cell phones in a classroom setting is one held by the author of “Today 's Lesson: Life in the Classroom Before Cellphones” Louise Katz, who believes that “those halcyon days” were over (Katz). Likewise, Zoya Kahn, the author of “Why Cell Phones Do Not Belong In The Classroom” has a similar stance on the topic, Kahn states that “it is in everyone’s interest for instructors to
The teachers were able to get together to discuss how technology is being used in the classrooms, and that shows
Sixty five percent of students sneak their phones in school, and are distracted by it.” This means that other students are losing focus while trying to learn. Teachers also have a hard time teaching when a cell phone is constantly interrupting the class. The effect of this are students and teachers will not be able to continue on working lesson plans. The Results of this is kids falling behind on subjects and performing worse than schools who ban phones.
Once technology comes available it is important to learn and know the proper use of it. Children should be educated more to use it in positive way. Students are distracted by their phones when they are at school. As the teachers are always against the use of phones in school, students and computers when they are at school. One negative effect that students have at school is their lack of studies and grades.
Could Phones in Class Be the Key to Learning Seeing a kid in class with their phone out, your first instinct will be telling them to put it away. Although cell phones can be a distraction and used for entertainment purposes they could be used for so much more. Phones should be allowed in classrooms to use as a learning tool, it will help students organize their work, and is cheaper than buying more technology. As you may know, schools are strict on their no phones in class rule.

Technology has made monumental advancements and contributions in the domain of education. The classroom environment is one of the gateways to guide and educate students in Technology. Teachers provide technological activities and strategies as part of their daily curriculum to nurture and strengthen the knowledge needed to become technologically proficient.
